That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2019 - 05:18 PM)

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 October 2019 - 02:55 PM)

I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Just like me in a game of Civilization. Don't have gunpowder? Time for your cities to burn.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 09:22 AM)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

@  CVReynolds : (14 October 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

that's perfect!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 October 2019 - 02:22 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 October 2019 - 11:44 AM)

It's a submarine, we swear!

@  Otaku : (07 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

You have to pay attention to what he's not saying. Of course he's never "heard" of Geosensus, since Geosensus only exists in non-auditory media! Why would he bother with such clever equivocation if he weren't hiding the truth? This only strengthens the case.

(I still say it's a notably weird coincidence that the only two geology... machine... TFs also both have characterizations heavy on social misalignment and are named "Geo____us". But there are odder things in the world.)

Yeah, like Japan using the name "Nemesis" in Beast Wars Second for what was essentially the same finale plot device as in Beast Wars, before the name saw any use in American TF fiction, and without Mainframe's awareness.

 

Or Simon Furman coming up with the Dark Essence around the same time as Japan's coming up with Angolmois Energy, which was again pretty much the same thing. And Hasbro years later creating a third variant of the concept in Dark Energon with, similarly, a lack of familiarity with Angolmois Energy.

 

 

 

 

Er, um, I, uh, I mean... Look, there! His Tweet specifically responds to an inquiry about a character named "Geometus" being inspired by Geosensus! His denial says nothing of Geomotus's inspiration! Ha! The fiend is up to something! Up to something, I say!

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

A bolo new era of stege!


If I didn't already consider every artist who steps up to do regular issues of a TF book a damned hero, I definitely would now that this reboot comes with toy-based character designs that seem to enforce at least 50% more linework for every page they show up on.

Pinky's sister Maud Pie is a rock specialist who's emotionally vacant and prone to long monologues about rocks, as well as talking to them more personably than she does to other ponies.

 

All geologists have social problems. It's a rule of fiction.


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Ah! You're right. I admire his opportunism, incorporating Verity's slip-up so smoothly into his false front. Let's all double-check ourselves, that we don't give him more opportunities like that.

Also that we don't double-wreck ourselves

The tfwiki still exists so you can gain more information about things you don’t know or have not read. I quite enjoy looking up obscure characters to see who I have missed. I like to think of possible toys those without any depiction could have.

Maybe Ruckley didn't use Geosensus because he wanted to make his own mark on the franchise after being given a wide open sandbox and told "go nuts?" Like, were people like this when Rung was invented back in 2012 and Roberts didn't use one of the eleventy thousand forgettable Micromasters?

Everyone's always complaining now about how everything has to be G1, and now people are upset that Brian's making a new character and not using some rando whose sole defining trait was that he was a weirdo who got fridged.
